    Need opinions on new system

    I didn't realize I wrote a novel here until I was finished, but please read on and help me out a bit, I'd really appreciate it!

    To start, I do not know the first thing about any of this Car Audio stuff. I've heard good things about Phoenix Gold, JL Audio, Exile, Focal, and Hertz stuff from some guys that are pretty credible. Granted, most of the equipment from those brands is expensive (out of my current price range), as you get what you pay for I'd assume.

    Anyhow, so today I bought a Kole Audio QX2-980 - $120
    (http://tinyurl.com/3ct8y6)

    And 2 10" Scosche EFX Hyperdrive subs - $70 ea, $140 total
    (http://tinyurl.com/2uh9xy)

    Anyway, the point is I am having some second thoughts about what I purchased as I think maybe I have rushed into this. Like I said I am new to all of this so I really don't know what to look for. I looked online after I bought this stuff for some reviews, but I think I found a total of like 3 or 4, one of which was stating Kole is terrible.

    So, I want some of your opinions? Did I jump into this too fast, and if so (I will return this stuff if necessary, as I haven't done anything but take these things out of the box and look at them) what is a better route to choose?

    My problem is I want the stuff now rather than waiting 2 pay checks and getting good quality stuff. My question is, if these subs/amp are garbage, what should I do assuming I want to get my system up and running as fast as I can (but at the same time having some good equipment)?

    Re: Need opinions on new system

    Before someone asks, I drive a '00 Ford Ranger, I am not willing to give up my back seat so what we plan to do is build a box that sits under the jump seats and goes from door to door in the back. I'll just have people be VERY careful when sitting back there.

    I don't need anything too bumpin', I just want a reliable system that hits relatively hard and will last a while... And at the same time I want my back seat. 10"s will do just fine.

    Re: Need opinions on new system

    why do you want to save the back seat in a ranger, theres not a ton of space back there. Is it one big bench seat or a seat on each side.

    that makes sense.

    and as for the "system" if you can't find some kid to sell it to keep it and use it, or don't. You could always get one good eight and slap it between those seats. then find and amp to power it correctly.

    If you can get some money for it again, if not just use it until you have enough to get something nice. I'm sure somone else can give a better suggestion than me.
